about us

Loving and supporting the animals and pets of the Bitterroot Valley

When people call in frantic about a lost pet … we answer.
When there is a community emergency … we stand ready to help.
There is a continuing and enduring need for the shelter … we will be here.

a campaign for the future:

For over 35 years the kennels and small rooms in our current facility have been constantly occupied by guests and this usage has taken its toll.

No one would have guessed in 1985

when our current shelter was built, how many animals would find safety, protection and a new future through the Bitter Root Humane Assoc.

we envision a new, modern facility

which will propel us through the next forty years and beyond. We envision not just kennels, not just a shelter, but a true safe haven for the lost, abandoned or abused animals.

we intend to build a new facility

to house the BRHA and its many programs and activities to support our community’s critters, no matter kind of animal they are. We feel certain the proposed building will create an excellent and effective facility. It will give us the ability to provide programs critical to the care of your animals.
